“We think Marvel and DC are doing big progressive things with their characters? Pffft. Carlos Vergara’s Zsazsa Zaturnnah is a strong, empowered, and very feminine superheroine whose alter ego is a queer male.” – Trinidad “Niki” Escobar






“Komiks were banned! When I was a kid in the Philippines, komiks were considered as lowbrow entertainment and was not allowed in the private school that I went to. It was frowned upon at home as well. You had to hide to read it, as if it were pornographic. The teachers would confiscate them and my folks would rather have me read something else, nga may pulos, something worthwhile.” – Wilfred Galila
